In the control panel you should see an icon that says Sounds and Audio Devices, which lets you control the volume of the main sound, mic, headphones, wave, etc..

That is the mic playback. When you use the mic to speak in a program that isn't playback that is recording. And It will work fine as long as mic is selected in the recordings properties. But this is the reason for your pour sound quality in your other post.
